    Pix coming soon, I have contact with a molder here that can do epp in a new style, its fairly expensive , but its even more durable than any other EPP molded that I have ever seen.
    This interest me, if it interest you guys I will consider doing a kick starter to bring it to market. Please give me a show of hands if you are possible future Drak flyer.

    I don't know the price yet, I do know that the epp molds are twice as expensive as epor mold. It will also have 4 inch and possibly 8 inch wing extensions that could make it just below 70 inches in wingspan. Plus it would be crazy durable. If it doesn't pay for itself, I can't produce it. And that means I would only be making them for myself. If I do a Kickstarter, I will keep the prices as low as possible

    ya I am on the same page. If it is not much more than the Z3 I might be interested. It looks much more like my type of plane compared to the Z3.
    If you didn't build it, don't fly it!!!!

    Music to my ears... count me in for this bird.

    I am sure that you have already looked into it... but why not hotwired cores? It won't be as easy to build, but it would get the plane out there for users to fly it and get their feed back before making the mold.
    When nothing else out there will suit your needs... design and build it yourself.
